Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Having noticed all the splendid phots being uploaded to instagram of the stunning scenery during the cold weather, I couldn't resist the urge to visit.

Good points
Breath taking scenery, and amazing walks, made much more spectacular with the frozen falls.

Bad points

I was unaware of the new parking fees, but I was willing to pay the £3. However, due to the cold snap (-7), none of the machines were working, and there was no other way to pay because the signs had been obscured by snow. I took photographs as proof. Regardless, I received a nice charge letter from Minister Baywatch, which I appealed, but in the end I had to pay the £60, as my case was thrown out despite the photo evidence. They concluded that "I should have left the vicinity immediately after knowing there was no way to pay". Yes that sounds logical after an hours drive to get there in treacherous weather. What a shambles, and yes I do have this in writing!!!!!

Conclusion
I have some great photos of my walk which was truly breathtaking. However, with the car parking fine so save your money and get a deal on "photostock" for the pictures and go to another park that is free of charge or has fully operational machines.

WARNING ! WARNING!
if by chance you did not notice that National Heritage now charge for parking ( BUT FREE PARKING WITH A FOOT PATH DOWN TO THE VILLAGE CAN BE HAD OPPOSITE SCHOOL STRAIGHT THROUGH THE ROUNDABOUT,) if by chance you do get a parking charge from Minster Baywatch you will get very little time to pay and it will be passed on to a dept collection company Dept Recovery Plus who are very rude in their dealings .

Enjoyed this visitor centre but make sure that you go and spend most of your time actually seeing the Falls of Clyde!

I just love the walk along the path by the Clyde in nature. Shame about the unavoidable infrastructure as you get closer to the generator but otherwise a great day out. Every time I've been there the river has been in a different mood so it's always a surprise.

Bring good shoes and water. Not wheelchair accessible. give yourself an hour to reach the highest waterfall. Lovely in all seasons. Possible Otter, Badger and more common sights to be seen.

The trail is a nice spot to walk and the the Clyde River and Falls. The trail is behind the New Lanark village and is worth seeing if you care for a leisurely stroll after visiting.

We did the circular walk from the bridge near Kirkfieldbank, all the way up to the viaduct over the river at the top (south) end of the walk. We followed the "Pathfinder" guide route instructions - but continued over the river and back downstream on the Western side of the Clyde. The path is OK and easy enough to follow, but it was distinctly muddy in places, especially on the return. Good shoes needed as some of the wooden steps (and stony sections) on the way up were very slippery. There are viewpoints at several places on the way up, and certainly the falls are well worth seeing. The woodland is very attractive, and apparently there is a chance to see peregrine falcons (no luck for us). And I guess in summer it would be almost impossible because of the dense leaf cover. We went in November, after rain.
When we visited the visitor centre for some lunch I wasn't particularly impressed - the cafe and its facilities are pretty average, nothing special. I certainly wouldn't rush to see the Visitor centre on the basis of its "World Heritage" status - though the buildings and their historical significance are interesting. Do the walk (you can shorten it by starting at the Visitor centre and returning on the same route) and have a look at the village, take some snaps of the waterfalls by all means. It was a pleasant weekend autumn walk for our family of three. We enjoyed it - but don't wear white trainers!

Falls of Clyde is a stunning reserve with beautiful views of woodland and Falls, as well as a variety of wildlife, trees and flowers. Well worth a visit
